Mosaic Monday ... Caladiums waking from their slumber.

It's the first month of Spring here ... Downunder ... and in my north-eastern garden the Caladiums are waking up from their underground slumber.  I don't have many Caladiums left in the garden anymore ... years of drought took care of many of them ... but the ones that remain are simply lovely!

  3. Your caladium collages look like artwork! I really love the beautiful colors. I am growing more caladiums now. They do better if I plant them in pots. Then I bring the bulbs in to store for the winter.

  4. All your caladiums are gorgeous, and the second one is the best.

  9. Those caladiums are beautiful! The greens and pinks together are one of my all time favorite color combinations to decorate with. Beautiful mosaics.

  12. Oh how I wish it were Spring here all over again! No such luck though. Our colors are opposite yours. Caladiums would never winter over where I live. You must have mild winters. Btw, they have always been one of my favorites!

  16. I like the last one most! I had the second one before but I think probably gone now. Never seen it appearing so far ;-(

    Thanks for showing your caladiums. They are just too wonderful not to have one in a garden especially a tropical garden ;-)

  17. What beautiful colours. I've never had a caladium as a perennial - what a treat that would be.
    Happy first day of spring to you!

  22. Hi Bernie, just dropping by to see whats new on Mosaic Mondays. Can't believe you are just starting Spring! But then again, we are about to start Fall and I can't wait.

  23. Yes, those are certainly the ones I would have wanted to survive. Very nice cultivars! A clear reminder that your world is so opposite ours here in Florida. It is March and April when our caladiums pop out of the ground. Now, they are getting ready to go to sleep for the winter. I'm feeling a bit jealous right now.

  24. Ooh, those are very pretty collection of caladiums! Especially love the first and the second one, I have not seen anything like that.

  25. Gorgeous caladium! I do love them but have a little trouble getting them lush here in the northern U.S. There are some many lovely varieties. Great pics!

  26. These are lovely and add colour to the garden. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog and paying a visit. Perhaps I should add some of these to my own garden.

  27. Bernie...WOW! I have grown a lot of caladiums in my lifetime, but none as beautiful as these. I know you are thrilled to have them colorfully popping out of the ground.

    Hugs,
    Genie

  28. Hi Bernie. Thanks for dropping by. I'd love to stay and chat but the next little while is going to be spent looking over your site. And now I have added caladiums to my wish list.

  29. They are so pretty. I used to see a lot of them in P/NG

  30. Hi Bernie,
    Oh, I LOVE those varieties of caladiums ... not like any I have here. Caladiums are so easy to pop in the ground and need very little care beyond that. Nice you are entering into spring and things are waking up. In Florida we are slowing down a bit with slightly shorter days.

    Thank you for stopping my blog this morning. Always a delight to make new friends.
